Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 21, 2007
Modavox, Inc. (OTCBB: MDVX) Internet broadcasting pioneer, producing and syndicating online audio and video, today announced that Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL Running Back, commentator and philanthropist Eddie George joins the VoiceAmerica Network (http://www.voiceamerica.com), online internet talk radio network, as host of his new show, "Radio, By George!" debuting on April 23, 2007.
Eddie George was the sixth Ohio State University Buckeye ever to win the prestigious Heisman Trophy, presented to the Best Football Player in College Football in 1995. George joined the Tennessee Titans in 1996 and won the NFL Rookie of the Year award that same year. Eddie was named to the Pro Bowl four times (1997-2000) and led the Titans to Super Bowl XXXIV. He was the Titan's starting tailback until 2003, and is only the second NFL running back to rush for 10,000 yards while never missing a start. George also spent one season playing for the Dallas Cowboys.
George has expanded his work as a philanthropist by donating his time and money to various charities, including his own non-profit organization, "Visions with Infinite Possibilities" (V.I.P.). He is founder and part owner of "The Edge Group" and "Eddie's Sports Grille" in Columbus, OH.
To complement his migration into film and television as co-host of Fox Sports "Totally Football", George will premier his new talk radio show, "Radio, By George!" with the focus being on educating listeners on current events relevant to living a balanced lifestyle, through holistic development of Mind, Body and Spirit. This live one-hour radio show, with dedicated segments will not only provide expert commentators, but will also open the phone lines to listeners to join interactive conversations. "This is an exciting opportunity to change lives," said George recently. "The internet is the radio station of the global future and it is my hope that this program will lead the way in bringing people to the table of enlightenment that they may be well fed with what they hear. Plus, we're going to have so much fun."
"I first approached Eddie to be a host on our premier sports channel, but through our discussions decided that he had more than sports talk to bring to the VoiceAmerica Network," explained VoiceAmerica Network Senior Executive Producer, Brandy Jackson. "For Eddie George fans, this series will provide an engaging experience that bridges the gap between a sports celebrity and his fans, in an entertaining atmosphere. We are very excited to have Eddie join our Network."
